"You listen to a piece of music and it will remind you of something-it might make you happy, it might make you sad, but it is very emotive. And I think that Duran Duran have always understood that. " -Nick Rhodes
Today is Duran Duran Appreciation Day!
Quite frankly the band has always given me a warm, fuzzy feeling and...well...warm and fuzzy stuff is exactly what we do here on the self care blog....it is just good self care to be a little giddy and nostalgic at times...also we are always looking for a good excuse to celebrate (and eat cake.) Today Duran Duran is our answer, girls!
Last year, my English husband, Simon (ironic isn't it?), took me to Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington to see Duran Duran. We got great seats and some pretty good pictures too.
The most striking thing about seeing these guys in person- other than just loving their music played live- is how amazing they look. They arrived at the park dressed to the nines and just looked stunning!
Here are a few more pictures from the concert....Be sure to take some time today to pay homage, girlfriends...turn on your favorite Duran music...grab a glass of wine and do a little appreciating! Enjoy!
